comment Was the communication between Spitfire and other fighters' pilots encrypted?
Yes, it's reasonable, but the question answers itself by pointing out that encryption of voice during WWII required a huge machine that could not be fitted in an airplane. I think the question can be rewritten to be a good question, but currently I don't think it is one.

When you say "communication" you seem to mean only voice communication. And then you answer your own question.

@bob-know-all This is indeed the correct answer.

comment Why did Hitler attack the Soviet Union when he was still busy fighting the United Kingdom?
@gerdi It depends on which "why" you mean. Why did Hitler want to invade Russia? No one knows. How did he rationalize it? Well, that's largely what Mein Kampf is about. It basically boils down to Hitler thinking that Germans are superior, and therefore has the right to land, and in fact must grab land and expand to protect itself. And Germany should of course do that primarily east, because the slavs were less worthy than "aryans". So Hitler outlined all this already in 1923-1924 or so.

comment What is known about early history of Judaism?
A better source for how widespread literacy was amongst jews in 200BC would be a historical research-paper on how widespread literacy was amongst jews in 200BC. The rabbis you meantion does not even mention literacy rates. They are discussing something completely different and you are just interpreting them freely in ways you really can not. That Rabbi Shimon condemned those who studied Torah but did not do so full time does not tell us how common this was.

A rabbi whom you interpret to claim that all Jewish males must study the Torah full time is not an reliable source on how widespread literacy was at that time.
